ARLINGTON, Va. — The American Trucking Associations (ATA) and its Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) continued National Technician Appreciation week by recognizing the first Light- and Medium-Duty Technician Superstar. Chad Moore of Rush Truck Centers, Oklahoma City, was awarded the honor Sept. 23.
“Chad’s dedication and professionalism is something all TMC members aspire to,” said Robert Braswell, executive director of TMC. “It is an honor to be able to recognize him during National Technician Appreciation Week.”
Moore has served for several years as a Ford vehicle technician for Rush OKC, and is a certified senior master technician.
“Chad is a great mentor for other medium-duty technicians, takes great pride in his work and his team’s work, and understands the importance of customer satisfaction,” said Kevin Williams, general manager of Rush OKC. “He is a good leader and goes above and beyond helping others.”
The Technician Superstar winners will receive a complementary registration to a TMC meeting of their choice and one year’s membership in the Council.
During the first-ever National Technician Appreciation week, Sept. 21-25, 2020, TMC conducted a new Technician Superstar Program. Companies were encouraged to nominate a person or persons from their organizations who exemplify excellence as a commercial vehicle technician. Winners were selected in three categories — heavy-duty, trailer, and light- and medium-duty.
